sneaky peeks

I apologize if I got you excited for cotton candy. I was too!

 My first job at age 15 was working in a concession stand at the Super Oval, a racetrack in my hometown. That summer I lived to stand around making sticky cotton candy while everyone else rushed crazily about prepping for the evening. There was really no competition for this task. I would end up spending the entire night covered in tacky sugar all up in my outfit and hair. The most reminiscent part to these teenage summers came from popping out the plywood windows and shoving stick after stick of free fluffy sugar to the waiting little tyrants (racecar driver offspring) that roamed the Oval before dark.

Back to my point...due to circumstances beyond my control I will no longer be having the "Cotton Candy Underground" artshow in Coeur d'Alene on the 3rd. I actually canceled it. There was some change in ownership and it just didn't seem like the right time for an exhibit there. I will have to find another excuse to rent a cotton candy machine and feed you all those sticky sweet sugars of my past.

Even with with a short deadline looming overhead,  I had a wonderful time preparing some new pieces. So, even though you have to wait to see them....I will share some sneak peeks here:

Have a lovely weekend!
